Latina Model Magazine has had a long working relationship with both Alexa Jackson’s mother & father, both of whom are incredible talents. That said the saying “The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree” can definitely be applied to Alexa.
Spotlighting Latina teen model Alexa was a no brainer for LM mag because of your youthful energy, early experience and of course the natural beauty she inherited from her parents.
Hi, my name is Alexa Jackson Latina teen model, I would like to share my early journey as a model with you. Although I am still very young, I would like to share where I am today and where I hope to be very soon.
Modeling for me has always been an influential part of my life. My ambition to succeed inspires me every day. Furthermore, it’s always been a goal of mine to produce beautiful artistic images that have the potential to look like works of art.
If you are still looking for that one person who will change your life, take a look in the mirror.
Early Modeling Influences
My modeling began as a child. My mother (Melissa Jackson) and father (Stoney Jackson) were both in the modeling and entertainment fields, I naturally took an interest in both.
However, in my early teenage years, I gravitated more towards modeling like my mother. To me, modeling means so many things.
Advice from a Young Latina Model
I believe one needs to be more than just a “pretty face.” It’s best to have ambition, strength, self-confidence, including the ability to be able to work with all types of people and in all kinds of environments.
Therefore, you need to be open to new and different experiences regardless of what they may be. Also, you need to have a positive outlook and keep your spirits high, irrespective of the outcomes.
Put in time, effort, and energy to practice your craft, and most importantly, confidence to do everything with grace. “The world is your runway. Always stay confident- not cocky”- Chantelle Jackson Williams (ANTM).
Many do not fully understand what it takes to be a model.M
y mindset on modeling has always been more of an artistic view than any other. Modeling as an art form can be an essential factor in the success of different arts to flourish. Modeling, in many instances, can be considered a vital piece of the puzzle to complete a grander view.
For example, as a model, most would like to believe that they are the center of attention. On some occasions, this may be true; however, I prefer to see it as a model, who is modeling someone’s designs, or hairstyles, makeup looks, photography styles, etc.
The point is that the model and the artistic work they are modeling should be working together and are just equally as important in the big picture.
Most of my modeling education comes from my own mother guiding me, through her own experiences, and a few of the beautiful people I have met in the industry.
Set Your Goals High
My goals are most definitely set high… but you have to start somewhere. I’m still just starting; however, I am very thankful for the opportunities I have had along the way, including the people I have had the chance to meet and work alongside.
So far, more recently, I have had the opportunity to work twice in LA Fashion Week, walking in “Ode to LAFW” and “Society Fashion Week,” for Marnett E’leion, and Angelica Curtis.
I have also had the opportunity to shoot with international Photographers, Dominic Petruzzi, Kim Kardashian’s “GlamMasters” with Stephanie Tear, “Victoria by Elizabeth,” and, of course, Latina Model Magazine, along with various other photographers, makeup artists, and stylists.
The Models I look up to
I have so many amazing models in the industry to look up to as heroes, I cannot pick just one. My favorites aside from my mother are Adriana Lima, Irina Shayk, Tyra Banks, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, and Barbara Palvin.
As far as who I “aspire to be like,” I aspire to be myself. Don’t get me wrong, it is always nice to be compared to other beautiful and hard-working models, but I’d personally like to be known for being myself and unique in one way or another. I prefer to make my own name and own it!
